    The creators of the social media sensation #IMomSoHard, Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, know what it means to be a M.O.M.—the Meanest Of Meanies!

    It’s cheering the loudest at the spelling bee, making crazy dinners because someone is a “picky eater,” bath time (enough said?), and only reading four books at bedtime when someone has piled up about eighty-two of them.

    Because the truth is that when you’re a M.O.M. being mean . . . means . . . I love you.

    • Author: Jen Smedley has been writing and performing comedy for 25 years, beginning as a stand-up and improviser for a “teen night” at an Omaha, Nebraska comedy club. After performing with a nationally touring improv group for 10 years, Jen moved to Los Angeles where she studied comedy at the Second City Training Center and The Groundlings School, eventually becoming a cast member of The Groundlings Sunday Company. Jen has written and performed for television, commercials, and even as a professional tweet writer and joke writer. Jen has created and produced multiple comedy series for online networks and is currently developing the pilot she co-wrote and created with Kristin Hensley, #IMomSoHard, for Warner Brothers television. She also moms hard in real life.

    • Author: Kristin grew up in a small town in the middle of Nebraska where she learned that working hard and laughing harder is the best way to live life. After graduating from the University Of Nebraska in Lincoln she ventured out to Los Angeles where she started working as an actress, comedienne, writer, teacher and bartender. She met her friend Jen, the other gal on the cover of this book, while drinking beers in the parking lot of a run-down comedy theater. After 15 seconds, they became besties and soon realized that they were both from Nebraska! Soon after, they both met their now husbands, had a couple of babies, found themselves completely overwhelmed and started a web series called #IMOMSOHARD. Turns out there are a lot of moms/women out there who feel the same. This is Kristin's first book but not her last as the material only gets better and the kids age up. Thanks for reading!
